I'd try building a kernel mentioned on the Xen PVOPS wiki page to see if that solves the problem:
Current active branches are:
- this is the long term maintained branch, tracking upstream kernel.org
2.6.32.x stable updates. This branch has Xen dom0 patches added. This
is the recommended branch for most users. Changelog: http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/jeremy/xen.git;a=shortlog;h=xen/stable-2.6.32.x .
- This is a branch for next 2.6.32 version and gets migrated to the
stable branch once automatic tests have succeeded. Changelog: http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/jeremy/xen.git;a=shortlog;h=xen/next-2.6.32 .
devel/next-2.6.38 - this is the current development branch based on Linux 2.6.38. Changelog: http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/konrad/xen.git;a=shortlog;h=devel/next-2.6.38 .
